ABOUT

I played Bb Cornet for about 15 years in a brass band, moving on to purcussion and drum to contest standard. Obtaining RSM Grade 5 in the Cornet. I still have the trumpet I started to learn on at the age of 7...I used to play drums (from late school days) and ended up in all sorts of rock bands during my college/uni and then first few working years in and around the South West and London and played paid gigs to 200-300 people..got close to a management deal in London band (together with some studio time recording a 4 track demo) but then disaster struck on Christmas and had all my drums stolen which grounded me for a few years! A few years later I bought an electronic kit and confined myself occasionally to the loft but still try and practice when I can. Would love to get involved with a local band for a bit of fun when this CV-19 has passed!

Influences

The 80’s pop and metal era are my main influences (Metallica, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Van Halen, Toto, Dire Straits, The Police, Nick Kershaw, Mr Mister, etc.), but also like prog rock (e.g. Asia, Genesis, Rush), some acid jazz (e.g.Jamiroquai) and blues and I enjoy a bit of classical too. Big fan of War of the Worlds music - Hate Rap and Country music!!
